The ceaseless onslaught of illegal aliens attempting to enter the US has expanded well beyond the porous southern border. Sea avenues to Florida and California are increasingly being inundated and now agents manning the northern border with Canada are warning of a dire crisis developing in their formerly quiet sector.
Fox News on Feb. 21 reported that it had obtained an internal memo in which “Border Patrol assistant chief Juan Garcia writes to sector chiefs requesting help in the Swanton Sector, which includes Vermont and parts of New York and New Hampshire.”
The northern border has seen an 846% increase in illegal crossings in Fiscal Year 2023, Fox reports. The numbers involved are far from insignificant, and are only expected to mushroom.
“So far in fiscal year 2023, which began Oct. 1, some 55,736 migrants have been encountered at the northern border, nearly as many as were encountered in 2020 and 2021 combined,” The Daily Signal noted. “If the trend continues, the northern border will experience a record number of encounters this year. In fiscal 2022, CBP reported 109,535 encounters at the northern border.”
What’s Going On?
Where are they coming from? “In the email, Garcia says the increase is attributable primarily to ‘Mexican migrants with no legal documents’ entering the U.S. from Canada,” Fox details. It makes sense. The chaos that reigns supreme on the U.S. southern border makes attempted border jumping a harrowing experience. Criminal cartels control major crossing areas, demanding exorbitant fees from all who cross their territory. The sheer numbers of illegals pressing into America further amplify worries over obtaining food and water in rough terrain in a hot climate. Massive drug smuggling adds additional elements of danger.
While icy conditions far to the north for much of the year are certainly a factor, the simple fact is that, in contrast to the southern border, one does not have to endure battle-zone conditions in the attempt to enter the U.S. from Canada. It also helps greatly that the Canadian government has made it vastly easier for Mexicans to attempt entry from the north. The change occurred in 2016, shortly after Justin Trudeau became prime minister in November 2015.
“The increase in northern crossings may also be partly due to Canada lifting a visa requirement for Mexican travelers in 2016, said Kathryn Siemer, acting patrol agent in charge of Pembina Border Patrol station in North Dakota,” state-run Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported in January.
“I think we’re still seeing some of the repercussions of that, where it’s easier to fly into Canada and then cross into the United States as opposed to trying to come north through the Mexico border,” Siemer stated.
Trudeau’s June 2016 action came packaged in all the usual pretty ribbons of globalism, framed in jargon championing freedom of movement for North Americans and boosting trade. “This move will make it easier for our Mexican friends to visit Canada, while growing our local economies and strengthening our communities,” Trudeau declared during a state visit by Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, the CBC reported at the time. “We share more than just a continent. We share values, goals and ambitions. Not only for our respective citizens, but for all members of our global community,” Trudeau crowed.
“The state visit by the Mexican president comes ahead of Wednesday’s North American Leaders Summit with U.S. President Barack Obama, a gathering otherwise known as the Three Amigos,” the CBC observed at the time.
Thus, in the hallowed name of “North American Unity,” Justin Trudeau enabled Mexican nationals to fly into Canada without visas. Today, US border officials in the north are warning of an alarming rise in Mexican nationals seeking to illegally enter America from Canada.
Erasing a Second Border
As Liberty Nation reported in January, President Joe Biden at January’s North American Leaders’ Summit in Mexico City openly embraced the same trans-nationalism promoted by Trudeau in 2016. Shockingly, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador told an American president to his face that the US must change its immigration laws at the expense of its citizenry.
“I’ve asked President Biden to insist before the US Congress to regularize the migration situations of millions of Mexicans who have been in the States working, living in the United States, and contributing to the development of that great nation,” Obrador brazenly said in public comments at the gathering.
Did Biden sternly rebuke him for this outrageous interjection into US domestic affairs? Of course not. Instead, he signed on to an agreement between the “Three Amigos” backing the Mexican leader’s call to the hilt. “Today, we affirm our joint commitment to safe, orderly, and humane migration under the Los Angeles Declaration and other relevant multilateral frameworks,” the joint statement read. “This includes… expanding and promoting regular pathways for migration and protection… and collaborating to counter xenophobia and discrimination against migrants and refugees.”
There are those who believe the carnage on the U.S. southern border is no accident – such as Chad Wolf, writing in the Washington Examiner in April, The deliberate plan behind the border crisis. If that is true, are the same forces that have exacerbated the crisis working to ensure it spills over to the north?
